Most of the people’s artistic abilities are hardly good to draw respectable stick figure. But what this artist does, is more than amazing: His paintings are completely photo-realistic and correct in terms of perspective. I thought that these little creatures were being kept in small containers until I realized what it really was: those are acrylic paintings underneath several layers of resin.
This fish is actually a small painting on the bottom of a wooden bowl.
It is painted using a special method. The fish’s body is painted on several layers of resin to create a three-dimensional effect.
Here is the first layer of resin being applied. The artist waits until the liquid substance hardens.
Then the fish, including all the exquisite details, are painted on the hardened layer to create the perfect illusion.
When the fish is finished and the paint is dry, the artwork looks like this:
A last layer of resin is applied. The substance doesn’t create just a 3D effect, it also helps to make the colors more brilliant.
A fish in the water? It’s actually something completely different than what you think.
